Title Probing Solar Wind Charge Exchange Emission From Earth.s Magnetosheath


DOI 10.5270/esa-yqs1tqo
Author Dr Steve Snowden
Description We propose to use the EPIC detectors to map out Solar Wind Charge Exchange (SWCX) emission from the upstream (relative to the solar wind) portion of Earth.s magnetosheath. This is the region of maximum expected emission which peaks at the subsolar location. These observations will be used to investigate SWCX emission models which have never been tested for lack of appropriate data, study the interaction between the solar wind and the near-Earth environment in a new and novel manner, calibrate the contribution of this emission to observations of more distant objects, and test the utility of using X-ray observations to study global phenomena which currently can only be investigated using in situ measurements.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
